We’re so excited for the return of our annual Family Ride and Walk event in just THREE short weeks, that we’re starting the celebration a little early! Every week, check your inbox (or our blog, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) for a countdown message about a new topic related to the event.
T-MINUS 3: HELP US CELEBRATE OFH SUNDAY!
We’re excited to share that we will again be celebrating Outreach for Hope Sunday on September 19! Join us in this synod-wide opportunity to lift up the work of Outreach for Hope and our Ministry Partners in your congregation’s worship.
Here are some ways you can mark the day:
- Prepare a Temple Talk/Announcement: We invite you to use the resources provided here to prepare a temple talk or announcement introducing your congregation to Outreach for Hope’s work, and encouraging members to sign up for the Ride Run Walk (remember, registration closes on Monday, September 20 at 11:59 pm!).
- Offer Prayers for our Ministry Partners: Use our OFH Sunday prayer of the day and/or prayer petitions (linked here) during worship.
- Share a Ministry Spotlight Video: Another way to celebrate in worship is to show one of our Ministry Spotlight videos, which share stories of the vital work our Ministry Partners do in our community. Visit this website to peruse and download videos from the series.
- Share your Snapshots: We also encourage you to take and share a photo of your congregation celebrating OFH Sunday. You can post them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #OFHSunday2021, and/or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Take up a Special Collection: If you would like special donation envelopes for our RRW event, please contact us at email@example.com or 414-671-1212 and we will mail them to you for free.
Thanks for helping us celebrate OFH Sunday in worship on September 19. Your involvement will really help encourage those who haven’t yet engaged with the Ride Run Walk, so we can make this year’s event better than ever!!
